OneWebDay is a global celebration of the collaborative, participatory nature
of the web that takes place each Sept. 22. The first OneWebDay was celebrated in 2006. Here's
a video that tells the OneWebDay story.
To help celebrate OneWebDay, the Internet Archive is asking its partners,
collaborators, and fans around the world to upload videos to the OneWebDay
collection. The videos should relate to one or more of the following:
- Show/describe/explain how the internet has changed lives around the globe
- Provide histories of personal involvement with the emergence of the
internet around the world. Who in your town or region did something to make
the internet more accessible? Who taught you how to use online resources?
- What does the internet mean to you? How would you like it to change the
world in the future?
The web has changed the world in the last ten years; it's helped families
keep in touch, helped people find jobs, brought news close to home, and on
and on. Because the web is made of people, it's up to us to protect and
defend it - and not take it for granted. The idea behind OneWebDay is to
have an Earth Day for the internet.
